Sure, I'd read it.

I'd read it, Capt'n. And I'm certain there are millions of others who would...I'd probably buy some copies for gifts, especially if there were great photos.

To paraphrase Rilke, >>> There is only one reason to write, because you must.

If the work is in your heart, spirit, and mind, then let it flow...flowing.......

Never say 'no' to the urge to write. Worst that can happen is the book doesn't get picked up--you can always try self-publishing it instead, or just enjoy the catharsis of getting your thoughts down on paper.

I could see each chapter starting with a quote from a Dead song;* after all, Hunter was the most underrated member of that group, and the Dead's lyrics always seem to get overlooked in the general discussion of what made the band so dynamic.

*Chapter 1: "Once in a while you get shown the light/In the strangest of places if you look at it right."

Chapter 2: "Gone are the days we stopped to decide/where we should go/we just ride"

Chapter 3: "Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own."

(you get the idea....good luck!)
